More principled would be to use a lasso-type approach, which combines selection and estimation in one fell swoop!

If AIC is giving you a model that is too large, then use BIC (log(n) as the penalty for adding a term in the model). This will yield a more parsimonious model. Now, if you ask me which is the better option, I have to refer you to the huge literature on model selection.
